. -- >> that policy, don, when you watcha what had happened happenn cairo at the embassy there, in been ben at our consulate and a variety of embassy locations around september 11, how do you respond when people ask, is history repeating itself? is this 1979 all over again? >> we saw in cairo, after a day or two, the egyptian government absolutely stepped in and provided the kind of security that we needed. so cairo is a slightly different case. but in benghazi, we see that the government there is not capable of providing the security that we needed there and so, you have a tragedy which was in some senses avoidable and goes beyond the deaths of that's four very brave americans. it really is a foreign policy failure. and so, you need to tie the issue of adequate security for the compound for the larger issue of what our foreign policy is and what our foreign policy image is overseas. >> i would love to have that discussion with you in the future. it's a big discussion and one that we want to have. it's great to have nuthe program. thank you for sharing your thoughts, your memories today. we look f
in cairo involved in peace talks and they are trying to bring about a cease-fire. chris, back to you in washington. >> he is reporting live from the israel-gaza border. thanks for that. >>> joining me now, two leading senators on national security issues. the advice chair of the intelligence committee and joe leiberman, head of the homeland security committee. before we get to the benghazi investigation, i want to ask you both about the growing conflict between the israel's and gaza. do you worry about a ground war in gaza, especially in this changing post arab spring middle east? >> ultimately obviously in the first instance to hamas, i don't think the israelis really want a ground war. they are only going to go into gaza if they feel they need to to eliminate the remainder of the missiles, a lot of them supplied by iran of that been coming over to israel. hundreds of them this year. so really the decision is up to hamas as to whether there will be a ground invasion of gaza or not. remember what hamas is. it's not the palestinian authority, which is recognized the right of israel to
that went to cairo and said america was guilty of torture. i don't know what -- i don't know what the basis of his mindset here is. i can't psycho analyze him. he did lie for two weeks because our government watched it in realtime unfold. i don't know why. maybe they failed to give the requested security. it seems like a lot of people are going voting booth and vote without knowing the truth. >> i think the proposition is simple. if the president does not report to the country before the election he earns a no vote on reelection because he is refusing to be honest with the american people. if the president did issue an order to help the people of benghazi, where is the order? this is clear historical document. it's easy to find. it's not complicated. where is it? if somebody turned down the commander in chief, who was it. did they tell obama they were turning them down? >> i think he was leading the july movie trailer brigade. six days away. you see the polls. governor romney has a lot of momentum. you are pretty good at assessing in th game. i'm sure you checked in with joe gaylord before
fire in this critical part of the world? she's going to cairo, to egypt because everybody is counting on them. they are indispensable. the president is finishing his trip in the far east and he's kept up his schedule of public events and appearances there but he's been doing some diplomacy personally. "the new york times" reporting that the president spent last night up until 2:30 in the morning making one-on-one direct phone calls with the israeli prime minister and also not the head of hamas, not the palestinian authority, but the president of egypt, which for a generation was our ally in the region, even though it was a creepy and repressive dictatorship. now that country, that crucial nation in this critical part of the world has a whole new face and maybe a whole new character in terms of its international responsibilities. nobody knows if this effort by them to broker a ceasefire is going to work. but it seems almost as important for the region, for the world, for us, frankly, that if a cease fire is going to come from anywhere, it looks like it's going to come from there. joini
egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part. are they willing to lose an election, to set up a political dynamic where there's a level playing field? i don't think we know the answer. >> whenever we're talking israel and hamas, you have to think about iran and its role. some of the long-range missile sites they bombed yesterday in those 50 strikes had bombs s
reaction to what had just transpire td hours before in cairo. >> this was not a demonstration. this was an attack by terrorists. >> so i've got mr. obama sitting here. and he's -- i just was going to ask him a couple of questions. >> no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all of the damage that he found in just four years. >> the 47% who are with him, believe that they are victims. >> when he said behind closed doors that 47% of the country considered themselves victims who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about. >> so there it is. we're two days left. mayor, what stands out for you? >> well, the clinton speech, when he basically put it plain and used simple arithmetic. this was a damaged economy, and now this was a president who faced challenges that haven't been seen since the great depression. the second part, the part where i got fired up, because i'm not replexive that partisan, would they accept tax cuts 10 to one? and all of them said no. >> and bill clinton was making the choice in the final hour
to jerusalem and cairo. here's dean rhodes. >> secretary clinton will depart today and travel to jerusalem ramallah and cairo leaving. she will meet with our israeli partners to consult on the situation in gaza. >> john: that's ben rhodes. he actually discussed who secretary clinton will and will not be speaking with. >> i can assure you she will be meeting with the palestinian authority. united states has not engaged directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we've set for many years to renounce terrorism to recognize israel's right to exist. >> john: by palestinian authority, i presume he meeds mahmoud abbas who it seems is completely powerless at all because abbas no habla no abbas. we'll be taking your calls when we return. it is "bill press show." 1-866-55-press. >> announcer: chatting with you live at current.com/billpress this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. these talking poin
it is the cairo speech that you delivered in 2009 or your repeated and important declarations on prevention of iran's nuclear capabilities, actions matter most. don't mistake the former for the latter. and today i just have to step out of my role for a moment because as a historian today is the anniversary of my favorite ever presidential statement on the middle east. 70 years ago today, president franklin delano roosevelt issued the following statement for the people of the middle east. just imagine a president saying that. praise be to you and the name of god the passionate, the merciful. may god be upon you. this is a great day for you because behold a week, the american warriors have arrived. we have come here to fight the great jihad of freedom. we have come to set you free. today is the 70th anniversary of the landing on north africa and prisoner agreed jihad of american freedom once again but we don't remember that because words matter so much less than actions. if those are three broad lessons were the three most urgent issues on your agenda here won't repeat the words of my colleag
the fence like what happened in cairo. there was clarity from the very beginning in this administration about what happened. what we didn't know is who and why. and that what's we are struggle something try to find out today. megyn: simon, do you deny the president linked what happened in benghazi to the video? >> the administration did. megyn: the president did. >> the idea that he blamed it for weeks. megyn: just if we -- i'm asking you. because i understand your argument. but when i listened to the president in the days after, there was no question that he was linking what happened in benghazi to the video. there was no question that he was doing that. >> what i have said on this show governor i don't think it matters. megyn: that's a different argument. that's different than you saying he didn't make the linkage. that's what mark is taking issue with. >> i'm saying it doesn't matter. what happened is what we knew from the beginning that it was a military-style attack. what there was confusion about inside the intelligence community and state department, cia, everybody, was what exac
on americans. he goes on to say, this seems to be different than cairo attacks. yet the ambassador to the u.n. going out that morning and told everybody it was the tape. what does all this mean to you? >> it means that obviously cbs is not carrying out their responsibilities of informing the american people, but this is not the first action of this nature by a major network, but it is what it is. it's in their dna. what i've been finding out is i've been traveling around the country nonstop for the last two months, has been that americans are fed up. our veterans are angry in a way that i have never seen them angry. i'm seeing active duty people who come over and tell me, i've lost trust. i've lost trust in this commander in chief. i'm telling you, i don't know how much it affects the election and i don't know -- i know there is 1.6 million veterans in florida. they are angry. they have lost their trust in this commander in chief. and they want a full and complete investigation. the only way you're going to get a full and complete investigation is a watergate-type select committee that's bi
reporters are fanned across the globe with reaction. >> i'm ben wedeman in cairo. most egyptians seem to prefer barack obama over mitt romney. many of them saying they thought the republicans are simply too pro israeli. but for most egyptians, there is so much going on in this country after the revolution, what with a faltering economy, and an uncertain political future. >> reporter: i'm fred platkin in berlin, germany. germans are by and large happy with the outcome of the election. barack obama would have gotten 90% of the vote here in this country. >> reporter: i'm reza sayah in pakistan. four years ago many here supported mr. obama. not the case this year. many wanted change. they wanted mr. romney and that's because they still don't like u.s. policy in the region, especially the drone strikes. >> americans have weighed in on several important ballot initiatives. take a look at this. for the first time voters in maine approved a measure giving same sex couples the right to marry. maryland voters made history by upholding a new law legal lelizing same sex marriages in that state. m
